Your pH is not an issue. What's the KH?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

It's fine. It's usually the wild caught specimens that need their water chemistry adjusted to be able to thrive.
